We're CGS and we build futures.


We build them with all sorts of people

at all ages and stages of their careers,

some working, some not working,

some forced not to work.


We meet first a bundle of emotions

which becomes in conversation

a real and uniquely talented person

with whom we work to build futures

in all shapes and sizes.


The common factor is that each future

is the right one for the client

because s/he's the one making

the choices which build them.
